Kimberly Alters is the Current and Innovation editor at Mic, where she oversees the site's coverage of the most pressing issues of the day. That includes everything from political shenanigans on Capitol Hill to grassroots organizing around reproductive rights to the latest news on climate change. Before joining Mic, Kim focused on community storytelling at HuffPost and was the news editor at TheWeek.com. She is a graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. When she's not obsessively checking for typos, she's probably either watching basketball or cooking herself a deliciously spicy meal. You can follow Kim on Twitter at @kimalters.
